    An existential crisis at our club

    I went to the game today and found myself with a sense of disorientation and confusion in the face of what seemed the apparently meaningless and absurd parallel universe which is currently centred at SJP. Breaking my self imposed boycott I got tempted to make an appearance on the basis that I...

    Scary clown frightens crowd at SJP

    https://goo.gl/images/wrdnBG Chubby , red faced and centre stage this clown scaring regulars at ECFC. His history and record as executive director, football suggest he often swears 20 inch shoes and a squirty flower in meetings with manager Tisdale. Responsible for some of the most comical...

    Tisdale linked with Leyton Orient job

    Apparently 25/1 ! Only 10th in line though - that just about says it ! 10th in the line for the Orient job - once upon a daydream he was being touted by his PR for Swansea As much as I wouldn't condone violence in the workplace at least he'd have a chairman to kick him up the rear

    Stay away from Notts County game!

    Never thought I'd say this after almost 40 years of supporting City - stay away next home game. Tisdales "compensation" will pale into insignificance ,even to Tagg and the other clowns on the board, if attendances drop to an unsustainable level.

A 400 mile round trip to see that rubbish Have supported ECFC for 30+Years and indeed Tisdale for the first six years of his decade in charge but enough is enough.

    Why 'Pop' Larkin is far from "perfick" - and why WMN should fire him

    I don’t often buy the Western Morning News , mainly because of it’s consistent Argyle bias but I was tempted in to buy this Sundays edition because it heralded an insight into City’s Academy. This was a brilliantly informed and insightful piece by Stuart James. If those “stay away” protesters...

    Fantast football or emperors new clothes?

    As I meandered back from Tranmere had time to more than skip through exeweb - some posts seem to credit the Trust with the emergence of Grimes and any other positive happenings around the club and seem to set out this Trust v. Suits mentality. That sort of Them and us thinking I thought had...

    10 reasons to get behind your team - a view from Prenton Park

    I have followed the Grecians for over 27 years and watched professional football for over 40 years. I have also been a fairly frequent viewer of Exeweb but frankly got bored quite quickly with the nay sayers, Waldorf and Stadlers, and those who at the slightest down turn, turn on the club ...
